BOSTON (AP) - High winds and coastal flooding are replacing snow as the biggest potential weather hazards as the new work week gets underway in Massachusetts.

The snow is expected to tail off Monday, but winds are kicking up.

The National Weather Service says coastal areas of Massachusetts will bear the brunt, with Nantucket and Cape Cod at risk from gusts as high as 65 mph.

The wind as well as heavy wet snow clinging to branches also brings the risk of more power outages. The state’s largest utilities were reporting minimal power outages as of Monday morning.

Northern Middlesex and Franklin counties took the brunt of the Sunday-Monday storm, with Rowe reporting 12.5 inches of snow, and Pepperell and Tewksbury reporting a foot each. Boston got 3.4 inches.
